Even the best-laid plans often go awry. For our L.A. photo shoot with Something Borrowed stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson, the MC fashion team envisaged a classic boy-meets-girl moment. At five months pregnant, Hudson would don bump-covering blazers and sleek low-rise trousers, leaving Goodwin to tackle the body-conscious feminine pieces. But when Hudson fell for an ethereal ivory Dior dress and Goodwin, a Theyskens' Theory pantsuit, all bets were off.

Tired of counteracting her pixie haircut with lace and frills, Goodwin delighted in masculine silhouettes and a spiky '80s blowout (courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan).
